    I realize that if we win sun the last two games r pretty meaningless- but the colts have done this in the past and not fared so well. I think we hafta keep our momentum going into the playoffs- although I realize we have a lotta banged up players who should rest but the ones who r healthy I think should play until we have a comfortable lead then pull em. I guess if we win sun it doesnt look like we will continue our win streak into the playoffs. :unsure:

    I don't know how many times it's been said before, but we DO NOT clinch the second seed with a win. Denver/NE have to both lose for that to happen. Also I'm against resting starters, why ruin momentum and get them out of sync after 3 weeks? If they're injured sure give them time off to heal but if not let them play and continue doing what they've down for the last 8-9 weeks.

    If/when we do have the luxury of resting players I wonder is there a chance we might see Whitehurst get some action to try and add some trade value to him.

    Right now he is a waste of a 3rd round pick and nobody knows how good/bad he could be. :icon_shrug:

    Hell DB, you brought up a very good question and to be honest, I forgot all about Whitehurst. On one hand that's a good thing but he should be put on display for a possible deal. Nail's dude. :tup: :icon_toast:< root beer

    When we clinch the 2nd seed next week against the Titans.. I say we rest LT whether he is hurt or not against the Redskins, just to keep his legs fresh. Then all the guys showing up on the injury list, merriman, and everyone. The Bye week will be so nice, and make our path to the Super Bowl that much easier. BOLTS

    I was under that false impression until I looked at nfl.com and saw the different playoff scenarios.

    Gotta take this one game at a time folks.

    no i got that. Im just saying its dumbs for teams like the colts to rest players for a month and a half. The first round bye was there so they could rest. If they are gonna not play for a 1/4 of the season they shouldn't get a first round bye.

    This thread is pretty much like counting chickens before they hatch. Let's just take care of the business at hand first, which is this Sunday's game. One play at a time, one game at a time. Just like the old coach used to say...
